The D Casino in Las Vegas is the world’s first hotel-casino to accept bitcoin. This means guests can pay for room reservations and other services using this cryptocurrency. The property also allows customers to use the digital currency for food transactions and for purchasing items in its gift shop.
While the hotel and casino is not located on the famous Las Vegas strip, it is a renowned gaming facility with two floors and several modern slot machines. It is also home to Joe Vicari’s Andiamo Italian Steakhouse. Customers can choose to purchase their favorite steaks in Bitcoin at this restaurant.
The Golden Gate Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas is another major property that is considering accepting the currency. Built in 1906, the Golden Gate Casino has become the oldest casino in Las Vegas. Though it won’t allow its guests to play in the casino floor, it will accept the currency for room reservations and purchases at its front desk. In addition, it has installed a kiosk to facilitate the purchase and sale of the digital coin.
Derek Stevens is the co-owner of both the D and Golden Gate hotels. Several of his patrons have asked him to accept bitcoin. He eventually accepted, and he plans to continue accepting it. However, he said he would not disclose the exact numbers until he is able to do so.
According to Derek Stevens, the D Las Vegas Casino Hotel has been the destination for the most Bitcoin transactions so far. He says that the hotel has had more requests for the currency than he originally anticipated. Initially, he thought guests would use the currency for single-item purchases or for food and drinks.
On January 22, 2014, the D and Golden Gate began accepting Bitcoin. In addition to the front office and gift shop, the properties will now accept the digital coin for room reservations and food and drink. Guests can deposit money into bit coin accounts or exchange it for dollars at the ATM, which will be placed near the front desk.
The D has a number of other restaurants that accept the currency. Guests can enjoy a fine meal at Andiamo Italian Steakhouse or take their pick of a number of other menu options. They can also buy the famous Detroit Coney Dogs at the American Coney Island.
Both casinos will be using the service of BitPay, a Georgia-based payment processor that is used to streamline the process of making payments. BitPay also serves as a mobile wallet and offers the option of paying with mobile devices and other digital currencies. By installing tablets in the cashiers’ area, the D will be able to make the process easier and more convenient for customers.
Although the D and Golden Gate are not on the infamous Vegas strip, they are a great option for visitors who want to gamble without the hassle of dealing with a large sum of money. Those who want to enjoy a little nightlife in Vegas can visit Crazy Horse 3, one of the largest strip clubs in the city. The club will accept the cryptocurrency for admission and tipping for lap dances.
